Bharti airtel today launched its 3G services in India’s financial and entertainment capital – Mumbai. This empowers millions of the always ‘on-the-go’ Mumbaikars with multiple ways of staying tuned to latest developments – using the ubiquitous mobile platform.
When in traffic at Mahim junction – airtel 3G services will allow customers to catch the stock market action on Mobile TV, quickly access portfolio management sites – or keep a tab on share prices through stock related applications on airtel App Central.
Similarly, even while catching the local train – entertainment lovers in Mumbai will now be able to leverage airtel 3G to access a host of exciting capabilities including video talkies, fast music downloads and rapid social networking. With airtel 3G services, customers can now access a wide array of capabilities at never experienced before speeds – thereby bringing them closer to all that they love. With the objective of delivering a robust 3G experience for customers, airtel has made significant network investments in Mumbai.
Already launched in the cities of Bengaluru, Chennai, Coimbatore, Mysore, Manipal, Udipi, Jaipur and Delhi NCR– airtel will launch its 3G services in all 13 3G-license circles by March 2011. Having commenced the rollout of its 3G services a little over a month ago, airtel has already achieved the milestone figure of half a million 3G customers across India.
Commenting on the 3G launch in Mumbai, Atul Bindal, President – Mobile Services, Bharti airtel said, “Mumbai is the commercial and entertainment capital of India – and therefore at the leading edge of driving a paradigm shift from voice to data services. With the highest data penetration in India of over 20%, the city of Mumbai truly represents the data revolution story that our country is currently witnessing. As we bring the power of 3G to Mumbai today, we are confident that this launch will add impetus to the expansion of data services in India.
